Tamma Corporation’s 2yo
colt Super Ninety Nine has been declared out of Friday’s $500,000 Breeders’ Cup
Juvenile Sprint at Santa Anita by trainer Bob Baffert, reducing his team of
Breeders’ Cup runners on Friday and Saturday from 10 to nine.
A chestnut colt by
Pulpit, Super Ninety Nine got cast in his stall early Friday morning, Baffert
said, “I’m really upset. He got cast in his stall this morning. Of all things.
And he just was getting more and more uneasy after it. He’s scraped up; it’s
not serious, but you can’t have stuff like this prior to a race like this.
“He’ll be OK, but not
today. It is really too bad. He was going to win that race. And it was his
owner’s first horse – her very first horse and her very first Breeders’ Cup.
It’s just too bad.”
